On Saturday, October 29th, Positive Coaching Alliance hosted its annual PCA scholarship banquet at River Oaks Country Club. The banquet was the culmination of a rigorous nomination process with over 500 applicants, which was narrowed down to 20 outstanding and deserving student-athletes. These 20 athletes define what it means to be “Triple Impact Competitors,” who honor the game, develop personal mastery, and make their teammates better.
The Village School had 2 recipients of this year’s Triple Impact Competitor Scholarship: Amber P and Charlotte S. These two student-athletes exemplify the principles of PCA.They have stood out and been recognized by their coaches and peers. They are leaders in their programs, the community, and their school. Congratulations to Amber and Charlotte for all of your hard work, commitment to your school and teammates, and leadership qualities that has left an everlasting impact on the people around you.
The banquet also recognized last year’s National Double-Goal Coach Award winner, Scott Mastro. Coach Mastro was able to make a positive impact on his runners by developing a culture for his program that not only developed them athletically, but fostered an environment that developed their character and compassion for each other.
Congratulations to Amber, Charlotte, and Coach Mastro for their well-deserved achievement and recognition. The Village School is proud of the impact you continue to make to better yourself and those around you.

The Village School 7th grade football team had a very successful year in its inaugural season. The team posted an overall record of five wins and three losses. The young men, comprised of 6th and 7th graders, all dedicated themselves to our program and worked extremely hard daily as we battled the Texas heat. Seventh grader Simon V. led the Vikings’ offense with 409 rushing yards and 8 rushing touchdowns, as well as 268 passing yards and 4 passing touchdowns. Seventh grader Chris C. led the Vikings’ defense with 45.5 tackles and 6 sacks. Seventh grader Maximo C. was an excellent player on both sides of the ball for the Vikings tallying 3 rushing touchdowns on offense and 3 defensive/special teams touchdowns.
We would like to thank the parents for their continued support throughout the year. We loved seeing you all cheering in the stands! Your sons played with grit, determination, skill and heart. We hope to see you next year!
The 8th grade football team ended their season in dramatic fashion by scoring 19 unanswered points in the second half to defeat the Presbyterian Panthers 19-6 in the HJPC Division II 3rd place bowl game. The Vikings defense was dominant after giving up an early score and the offense was unstoppable behind quarterback Channing D, running back Joel C, and wide receiver Andrew D. Coach DeBakey and Coach Brown would like to thank the entire team for their amazing effort at practice and their willingness to be coachable all season. This group of 8th graders have laid a great foundation for next year’s team as the Viking middle school football program continues to grow and improve. We are already looking forward to next season. Go Vikings!
The 8th grade girls’ volleyball team ended their season with a 5-6 record qualifying them for the end of season conference tournament. Our team set this goal on the first day of practice back in early August. It was simply, we would work hard, fight and win a spot in the tournament that has eluded us for a couple of years. Every player on this team, including alternates and managers, was driven and dedicated to each other, The Village School, and our commitment to do our best. It was truly a remarkable season, friendships were forged, goals were obtained and determination drove us all. On to bigger and better….GO VIKINGS!
